In this Monday, Feb. 4, 2013 photo, Lucien Tessier, 20, who had earned the rank of Eagle Scout, right, and his brother Pascal Tessier, 16, a Boy Scout, pose for a portrait near their home in Kensington, Md. For all his gratitude toward Troop 52 for supporting him and Pascal, who are both gay, Lucien is frustrated by the official national policy excluding gays as both Scouts and adult leaders. Giving troop sponsors leeway to set their own policies would be a positive step, Lucien said, but he would prefer a nationwide nondiscrimination policy. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin)
